CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) - A 17-year-old Thomas Dale High School student was charged with bringing two knives to school on Monday, according to Chesterfield Police.

One of the folding knives was less than three inches long, while the other was longer than three inches, police said.

"The juvenile did not display the knife or threaten anyone with it," police wrote in an email. "No one was injured."

The student is charged with one count of possession of a weapon on school property.

"We take very seriously our responsibility to provide a safe and supportive learning environment that is free from disruption. Students who violate student conduct regulations are subject to suspension and/or expulsion, and, if the offense is a violation of the law, to prosecution," Chesterfield Schools Spokesman Shawn Smith wrote in a statement when asked about the incident.

    yeah, carried my pocket knife, my Winstons in my shirt pocket, maybe even a Cheroot or two for the boy’s smoking area , girls did not have one, get caught with a ” nail ” now , ya get drug rehab, and a teacher better not mention God. And your child better not sketch a picture of a gun, counseling will be in order when he’s caught with that terrible thing. When we wore our cub scout uniform to grade school on meeting days, our scout pocket knives would be properly worn on our belt loops. Easy Street 122, retired police, retired army. My country is no longer. GO REDSKINS !!!!!!!!!!!
